San Francisco Giants: Pablo Sandoval Injured, Brandon Belt to Fresno
Pablo Sandoval hurt himself during batting practice (strained triceps) in Denver ahead of the Giants-Rockies series finale Wednesday, according to Giants beat writers Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle and Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News.
The Giants will now have to shift some personnel.
Brandon Belt Has Been Optioned to Triple-A Fresno
Despite the injury to Pablo Sandoval, and what some thought might be a need for Brandon Belt to be Aubrey Huff's backup at first base (since Mark DeRosa is now at third), Brandon Belt has officially been optioned to Fresno.
Cody Ross Is Back in the Lineup
Cody Ross will be back in the Giants' lineup today against the Rockies after being on the disabled list for the first two weeks of the season with a calf injury.
